As a safety precaution, Autopilot enforces a Minimum Altitude Movement Parameter, which is also known as the hard deck. If you engage Autopilot while on the ground, you will see this warning until the aircraft takes off and ascends to a safe altitude. Furthermore, if the aircraft ever goes below the hard deck while Autopilot is engaged, all lateral movement will be halted and Autopilot will apply throttle until the aircraft ascends to a safe altitude. Since the aircraft altitude is determined by the selected altitude reference, you may see this warning if you have incorrectly calibrated the Barometric or GPS altimeter while not on the ground.
